    I worked at Infinium Capital Management full-time

    Strong education program. Give lots of responsibility from the start.

    Keep employees in the dark on most matters

    Advice to Management

    More transparency

    I worked at Infinium Capital Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to start a trading career. Good technology, solid training, and access to a lot of good data.

    Cons

    Management blew it. Tried to become a big boy in the trading game without the means to do it. Figured hiring a ton of developers (to do mainly nothing) would be the ticket to the big time. Instead they drowned in costs. Hired a President that had zero industry experience and paid him an exorbitant salary that anyone in the know resented.

    Advice to Management

    Organic growth and building market share works better than trying to spend your way into the big game. No matter, the company folded and was sold for parts.

    I worked at Infinium Capital Management (More than a year)

    Pros

    None. Everything was just awful

    Cons

    Leadership had no clue. Never got paid despite being profitable

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone and hire people who know trading

    I worked at Infinium Capital Management full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and people that worked there. Initially great compensation and benefits. Fun and exciting place to work until employee base grew from 100 to 325.

    Cons

    Management team wanted to expand and be the next Citadel. Record year in 2008 made them believe we needed to double the number of employees. Inability to recreate success from 2008 and overhead essentially caused the demise of the company. Compensation and benefits went in the tank over the last 2-3 years of existence.

    Advice to Management

    Be thankful for the success that was in front of you. Sometimes hitting singles and doubles is better than hitting a grand slam.

    Too late

    "Educational Learning Experience"

    Pros

    Lot of challenging tasks to work on. Was a good working environment and had moderate level of success. People seemed to really care for one another.

    Cons

    Lot of changes happened all at once and the management and c-suite turmoil made it difficult to work through them all effectively. Made it so no one was really ever clear who was steering the ship. For a technology-focused organization, there was a lot of leadership void in the technology space.

    Pros

    Was a good place to start career. I was motivated to work hard/learn and grow my skill set throughout my time at Infinium. I do think that many leaders genuinely cared about employees.

    Cons

    High-level management lacked experience/maturity. While the HF tide was rising the mentality was focused on pretending to be a larger company, this led to excessive expenses and poor hires.

    Pros

    They have since renamed themselves V3 markets. Same vomit different bucket.

    Cons

    Pathological and sociopath liars. They celebrated after a mass-layoff right after Christmas - apparently layoffs are a cause to celebrate because it ensures fat bonuses for those doing the layoffs.
